5773 Tasting Notes
ohhhh Cavocorax your giant bag of teas here is calling your name….no really lol
I pulled this one out tonight to finish it off and leave the last little sample for cavo. I have a vague recollection that she had liked another similar tea before so wanted to save a sil sized cup for her to try. I quite enjoyed this variation on the theme, though i’m not sure how badly i need a caramel rooibos in my cupboard. I think i’d prefer the fruit caramel i have from tea G…or the decaf caramel as well….maybe not.. either way, enjoyed and now it’s done!
Final Count: 81 (though in other news, i did a quick check and i have a mere 52 non puerhs in my cupboard)
As a reward for working on my cupboard so well, i figured it was time to open up one of the few teas i have that i haven’t managed to try yet. I’ve actually been trying to spend more time on not just working through my older teas, but getting around to trying all my teas on hand so that i know what i want to keep around or restock. I was intrigued enough by this one to buy it, since i’ve had some positive experiences with hojicha, and well, i love caramel :)
My initial few sips of this one made me feel like it wasn’t what i expected it to be. i was looking for more caramel…more..just more. However, i realised shortly after that, that my cup was empty lol. This isn’t deep rich velvety milk caramel, but it is sweet and delicious. I’m a little curious how this would fare as a latte, since it might add to the creaminess. Overall, i’m quite happy with this and i’m going to have fun playing with the rest of my bag! :)
rootbeer float latte! the only was to drink this as far as i’m concerned :) I took a little time today to go through my cupboard and make sure that steepster, my cupboard and my spreadsheet are all in sync. :) I’m pretty excited since i’m down to 82 teas in my cupboard AND i only have 5 teas in my cupboard (not including puerh) that are older than 6 months! GO ME! i’m such a dork… but also, i’m just excited to aaaallmooost be at 80. And since canada post is a giant ball of suck, i technically may not even get tea from stacy to increase my cupboard :(
of course… yunnan sourcing and the puerhshop are both calling me to order from them… must.hold.out.longer.
another day….another puerh. :) This one comes from Boychik I chose this one to drink today, while i putter around the house getting ready for this afternoon’s meet up. Bonny is visiting here so a few of us are getting together this afternoon to hang out. :)
So far this has been a really smooth journey. This isn’t BOLD, in your face sort of puerh…it’s a mellow, soothing, relaxing sort of drink. more to come likely once i get home.
